Is Romney Turning Into A Political Rocky?

I am sensing something VERY EXCITING happening in the primary campaign. First let me start off by stating that my favorite scene in the original Rocky movie was when Apollo Creed is relaxing, apparently unaware of a scene on the TV news in his room showing Rocky Balboa furiously boxing away at slabs of meat. Only one member of Apollo's crew sees that news clip and appears somewhat concerned but not Apollo. For him, the upcoming fight with Rocky will be a breeze. Folks, the same thing is happening right now. John McCain is arrogantly assuming that Super Tuesday is a done deal for him. What he (and the MSM) is not noticing is that Mitt Romney is strenuously working to overturn that presumed result. Perhaps like that worried member of Apollo Creed's team, someone in the McCain camp might be noticing that Romney just won a huge VICTORY in the Maine caucuses on Saturday with 52% against McCain's mere 21%. In fact, this was the most heavly attended caucus event in Maine since 1980. Apparently Republican voters have been turned off by McCain's demeanor of an ungracious shmuck.

Like Rocky Balboa, Mitt Romney could well fluster the expectations of the MSM as well as the smug politicians who endorsed McCain such as Ahnold and the smoothly tanned Governor Crist of Florida. So if Republican voters, as has happened on Saturday in Maine, demonstrate their disapproval of the overbearing McCain, it could well result in a poltical miracle this Tuesday. Oh, and if anybody can find a video clip of Rocky punching meat on the TV news while Apollo Creed is completely unaware of the challenge ahead, please send it to me.

Meanwhile enjoy this Rocky training clip whose theme music could well be adopted by the Romney campaign should this Tuesday's election results counter the liberal conventional wisdom.

" Is Romney Turning Into A Political Rocky?"

I hope not. I didn't like Rocky and I was glad he got his ass kicked in the second movie.

Good luck, Mitt.

Charlie is working his ass off to become a one-term guvner. I'll vote for Castro before I ever give another vote to that glad-handing, Leftist-pandering RINO.

Oh, and "Go Mitt!" (Fred!™ was my first choice, but, luckily, I didn't throw my vote away by voting early and having him drop out on us before our FL primary.)

It is my sincere hope that the citizens of this great country, Republican and Democrat, go to the polls and, using the best information they can get, pick the candidate who they believe will be best for the country.

Polls, pundits, commentators, talk radio, dead-tree print and the MSM be damned. They point and squawk for their own gains while dancing around in the costume of "public good" and "insider enlightenment".

And 'yes', both sides do it.

Forget them. Make your own best decision and vote it.

Win or lose, it is what makes America great.

And punking the pollsters is such fun.

PJ, from your mouth to God's ears.

The idea of a McCain candidacy is grim.

We'll see. You've been right so far, PJ. Bloomberg is sucking the Dems dry. So is Nader. Your powers of perception continue to amaze. Now you claim the expectations of the MSM and the "smug politicians" endorsing McCain are about to be knocked out in 12th round by Rocky Balboa himself (disguised as the Mittster).

I don't believe you. I think you're wrong. Nothing you're saying is even remotely true. The Mittster is toast.

Bloomberg won't make a difference. Neither will Nader. Neither will the Mittster. He's done. McCain vs Hillary or McCain vs Obama.

You haven't been right yet. Get used to it.

You're slipping, trog. You have to remember that most libtards see all of the above as different things. Brush up on that moral equivalence, TP! I mean trog! (Or did you not want me to blow your cover? If so, I sorry. ;_;)

Why do I keep being identified as some undercover sleuth? And who the hell is TP? Christ.

Moral equivalence my ass. Big words. You're clearly a Jonah fan loving the Liberal Fascism. Keep on keepin' on.

Yeah... about as "undercover" as Val Plame was. HA!

Much better, troggie! Keep up the good work. The 'Liberal Fascism' whine was a good play, seeing how howling moonbats seem to have a collective, passive-aggressive mancrush on Goldberg for calling them out. I guess it's just human nature to lust after the unattainable. (Which is why they're obsessed with power over people's lives, I suppose. Issues from being teased in high school, perhaps?)

Care to back that up, son?

"seeing how howling moonbats seem to have a collective, passive-aggressive mancrush on Goldberg for calling them out. I guess it's just human nature to lust after the unattainable." basilisk

Sure. Passive-aggressive mancrush. You wouldn't be painting this picture with your own brush, would you? Of course not. You know nothing about passive-aggressive mancrushes. But you know them when you see them.

BTW. What I said was "Bloomberg won't make a difference. Neither will Nader. Neither will the Mittster. He's done. McCain vs Hillary or McCain vs Obama."

Am I wrong? Nope (God I wanna say 'dumbass' so bad).
